enable 2 flyspell modes in .emacs


emacs has these 2 mode for spell checking.

M-x flyspell-mode
Enable Flyspell mode, which highlights all misspelled words.
M-x flyspell-prog-mode
Enable Flyspell mode for comments and strings only.

I would like to, when I'm using java files, the flyspell-prog-mode is enabled. When I'm using latex files the flyspell-mode is enabled.

How can I do that in .emacs files?

Something like
(add-hook 'latex-mode-hook
          (lambda () (flyspell-mode +1)))
(add-hook 'java-mode-hook
          (lambda () (flyspell-prog-mode +1)))
